How Does It Work?

Chin augmentation surgeries are typically performed under local anesthesia with intravenous sedation - usually light anesthesia for sleep - or, when combined with other procedures, with general anesthesia.

The operation itself is a relatively simple procedure in which the doctor first makes a small incision in the skin just below the chin, and then inserts the implant, attaching it to the jaw bone to ensure stability. To complete the chin implant procedure, your doctor simply closes the incision.

The results, which will not be entirely apparent at first, will last a lifetime.

The complete chin implant procedure takes between one and two hours to complete. The incisions are placed as unobtrusively as possible, although the exact location depends on the facial structure. Some surgeons prefer to place their incisions in the mouth, also known as intraoral, while others prefer under the chin, also known as extraoral.

What Does a Chin Implant Involve?

1.         Consultation for Chin Implant

Your chin implant treatment process begins with an online consultation. Our specialists listen to your medical story, your current health status, your complaints about your chin, and your expectations from the surgery. They will inform you about whether you need a chin Implant or other treatments.

It is important to share all your medical data that may be useful at this stage. If available, please share your chin and face pictures with the health providers during this online consultation.

2.         Planning Your Trip and Choosing the Clinic

After your first evaluation, we offer a list of chin Implant clinics that meet the criteria you provide us. You will then decide on one of them. Depending on your choice, we move on to planning the entire process in detail.

3.         Final Consultation with Your Surgeon

When you arrive at the clinic, you will have a face-to-face consultation with your chin implant surgeon. Everything about your surgery will be discussed and decided upon during this consultation.

Your surgeon will ask you some questions to try to understand your expectations and concerns better and also make you understand what you should expect from your treatment with its potential risks or complications. He or she will explain the whole process clearly and try to simulate the results as much as possible to feel enlightened and ready.

4.         Medical Examinations

Before the chin implant surgery begins, your surgeon will perform a series of tests to ensure that you are in acceptable health status for the procedure. He or she will conduct physical and blood tests to eliminate the risks that can hinder the success of the procedure.

5.         Surgery

In chin implant surgery, the type of anesthesia is usually local, although it can be general if it is combined with other facial surgery that requires it.

A small incision is made in the mucosa of the lower lip or just in the part of the chin that is not seen. Through this incision, the implant is placed just in front of the chin. The position is checked and fixation sutures are given both inside the oral area and outside, to guarantee correct placement. Those sutures are absorbable and do not leave a scar.

What Happens After Chin Implant Surgery?

  • After the surgery, it is normal for the patients to feel discomfort, they may also have small bruises and inflammation on the chin and face that after the first few days will disappear.
  • After 2 weeks you can do sports, but you should practice light and moderate exercise and increase their intensity gradually.
  • The treated area will be slightly inflamed for about 10 days.
  • Some patients report that their chin has been numb for three months after the operation, although this is very rare.
  • You will also likely be given a support brace to wear when you lie down or sleep for the first few weeks after the operation so that the implant remains in the desired position and does not begin to shift during the healing process.
  • Although the results are immediate, due to the inevitable swelling that occurs after the chin implant procedure, the final result of your new chin will not be fully apparent for three to four weeks.
  • If you encounter any of the following symptoms after the operation, this could indicate something potentially serious that will require you to inform your doctor:
    • Sudden swelling or discoloration of the lower face
    • Fever
    • Increased redness and/or tenderness of the wound, suggesting a possible infection.
    • Hemorrhage
    • Allergic reactions to prescribed drugs in the postoperative period.
    • The chin implant moves


Is Chin Implant Procedure Painful?

Although you are unlikely to feel any excessive pain from the procedure, your doctor will prescribe pain relievers to help reduce discomfort and any inflammation or bruising that occurs.

Does A Chin Implant Surgery Leave Scar?

To perform the chin implant surgical procedure, an incision is made in the mouth between the gum and the lower lip to avoid scarring. If this is not possible, the incision will be made just below the chin.

Does Chin Implant cost abroad affordable?

Yes, the procedure will be more affordable abroad and cost less in popular medical tourism locations like Turkey. But some factors affect the chin implant surgery cost, like the clinics' location, the surgeon's experience, and the technique used.

    Ana was extremely helpful, friendly and made planning my trip so much easier. I don't know what I would have done without her! Going overseas to a country you've never been to before to get plastic surgery can be scary, having Ana made it a lot less scary knowing you have somebody there that's on your team to help you.

    From start to finish my experience with Flymedi was exceptional. The coordinator, Abud worked hard at finding the right surgeon for me. He was constantly in contact while I was away to ensure everything went smoothly. I honestly could not be happier with the company. Dr Ozge has done an exceptional job too. Thank you Abud for making me feel confident again!

    Very efficient communication. I was sceptical but they are very trustworthy and were able to organise my surgery abroad a year in advance without any issues. Would definitely recommend for anyone who has intentions of getting surgery abroad.

    I highly recommended Mustafa was good assistance all the way through. From airport, hotel, and hospital. The surgeon who conduct the operation did a great job. I was hesitant at first and was scared what would be the result but waking up after the surgery I was surprised by his professionalism. As well as Mustafa was being present every time I needed him out anytime I could contacted him. He never fails. Thanks to Y'ALL guys.
